Not Many People Know It

And maybe it's because I don't show it the way I should...
But, due to a few comments made (innocently) recently I just have to get this off my chest.

I love, respect, and admire my husband. I'll have his back until the day I die. I stand behind him, walk beside him, and never try to lead him in any way he does not want to go. He is the head of our household and the leader of our family. He makes the important decisions and I respect his choices. Thankfully, he asks my opinion, but I never expect him to, because, as I said, he leads this household.

Jake and I do not appear to have the typical relationship and I think that causes us to be misunderstood. The thing is, many people judge what they do not understand. I don't really think we're all that weird, but apparently some people do.

I think a lot of people do not realize the amount of respect I have for him and the fact that I not only realize that he leads our household, but encourage him to do so. I think people know me as being independent, stubborn, and strong willed... and they expect that that personality carried over into all aspects of my life- but it doesn't. While I don't feel the need to explain the dynamics of my relationship with my husband, I do feel the need to set the record straight.

I love him. I respect him. He loves me. He respects me. We are partners in this life. Our life works just fine for us. You should not judge what you don't understand. You should just stay out of it.


  1. A big thumbs up to you!!!! I must have missed something....but you go girl!!!!! It really is no one's business how you live your personal life...what works for one, does not always work for others and that if fine!!!

  2. I didn't see the comments, but have to say that I think you're spot on with this post! Amazing to be able to trust your husband like that (like I do mine), what a blessing! And I think sometimes it gets mistaken for being controlled - rather than being part of a partnership.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I missed the other comments as well but I agree, people that question how you live your life don't need to share what they think is best. What works for you works for you, stick to your guns!

  4. In the end, it is no one's business how your marriage works. You have to do what works for your marriage. Ignore the commentors. :)
